How does it all work?

You sign in to your profile using the link and password provided. Once you have access to your Business profile, you can bring it to life by adding your logo, banner, pictures, and other content/information to showcase your services offering. Most importantly, you will be able to invite other businesses to endorse you via a rating and/or review which will be featured on your profile moving forward contributing to better search ability!

Does the other business need to sign up to BackBone to provide the review?

As a minimum, we ask the other business to simply register for a free trial at this stage, prior to them providing the review. We do this to ensure only legitimate businesses are providing reviews. As a thank you, you both get a $100 advertising credit which can be used for a trial.

What is my rating when I first sign up?

All members start with a 5 star rating and a ‘New Member’ Badge to give them a strong start on BackBone. As other businesses commence endorsing them via a rating and/or review, the overall rating will remain at 5 stars or change accordingly. However, at the end of 6 months, if no endorsements have been received by that member, the overall rating for that member business, drops to an average 3 star rating.

How do I earn free subscription credit?

When you use the ‘Refer a friend’ tab, it auto-generates a custom link for you to refer to other businesses. When a non-member uses that link to sign up to BackBone, 1 month free subscription credit is automatically allocated to your account. All members can earn subscription credit but it can only be applied on an annual subscription at point of renewal.

Can free subscription credit be applied on a monthly account?

No, subscription credit earned can only be applied on an annual account and takes effect at your next renewal. If you are on a monthly account and have earned free subscription credit through referrals, you will need to move from a monthly to an annual subscription and apply the earned credit at the time of upgrading.
